In England we have the M1, M6 and M25. All spend time as car parks at rush times and building sites a lot of the rest of the time.

Oh, and occasionally they're roads too!

They seem to get the work done quickly around here. Not always but most of the time. Hasn't been a real issue here.

Started Jan 2014 will end sometime in 2018 or ........ 290 NW Freeway 38 miles. It's a messy. A total mess. They have tore up all 50 miles and work on 5 miles at a time. Leave it unfinished and move on to next 5 miles. Leave it unfinished and move on. 6 months later they come back 9 stand around 1 works. Over and over :(

Lol    For many, many years the big "joke" about Louisville is that when it comes to roadways/expressways, THEY ARE NEVER FINISHED!

Interstate 95 is a great example.

Yes!  Seems there is never enough time to do it right one time, but always enough time to do the same stretch of road over and over again.  It's like some kind of bizarre job security program.
